MARIE: A FINISH

This quilt has been in the making for quite a long time. I purchased the black patterned fabric years ago and made the quilt that is pictured at the bottom of these photos a few years ago. I had enough fabric left over to make the blocks for this quilt. I'm surprised it took me so long since I love making Stack and Whack quilts.  It is interesting to see how different the two quilts are even though I used the same patterned fabric and the same light background.

I Like Thursday #20

 The "I Like" group links can be found at Not Afraid of Color.  Thank you ladies, for your weekly uplifting posts of likes!


I like making quilts with friends.


My friend made this quilt many years ago and has been saving fabric to do it again. Her quilt is done, but I don't have a picture of it finished.



This photo is her new one with a few blocks started.




Here is mine.  It has been fun.  My goal is 4 blocks per week to finish all of the blocks in 2021.

Garden Party is Quilted!

 It is always a relief to get something quilted as it is not a favorite task for me.  I love the hand binding and will get to that some time over the next two weeks for my first 2021 complete finish.  
















This is the back.






I did get the binding made and neatly rolled.

F.N.S.I with Wendy & 15 MIn to Stitch Report

 I got quite a bit done this weekend.  All of my To Do Tuesday list is achieved and then some.  I cannot believe what one can accomplish in a day without work and time at home alone!

Princess Aurora made a little progress!



Garden Party is basted and pretty far on the quilting!



I made some more Masterpiece blocks!

PHD lists

 I love participating in Gail's UFO Challenge each year.  I have come up a little short each time, but I get so much done and try to focus on that instead.  This challenge really makes me think twice before starting something new because you have to finish it within the year.  If I make smart choices this year, I should be at a very manageable UFO list by 2022.

First Quarter Finishalong Goals

I am not much for Instagram, but I miss participating in the quarterly finshalongs that moved from Blogland to Instagram a few years ago.  I think I will post to both.  My quilty instagram is dreamworthyquilts. #2021falq1list

First quarter I hope to complete the following quilts.  My number one goal is to participate in American Patchwork and Quilting UFO Challenge.  The items that come up on that list will get first priority over these picks, but some may overlap.  Garden Party will definitely overlap because it is the number drawn for January. #january7


Arizona is basted and ready to be quilted.  Binding is complete.



Garden Party - It is on the basting frames right now and binding just needs trimmed and pressed.







Tom Turkey


Here are the borders that need to be attached.  One still needs to be hand stitched down.



Black Memory Round Robin - needs to be quilted.  The binding is ready for this one as well.

I Like Thursday#19

 Once again it is time for I Like Thursday with Leeanna.  

This week's likes include:

1. School: Students who are eager and excited to learn. I got new semester classes, and they are so much fun as I get to know them. 

2. Church:  1 zoom training down and 5 to go. One zoom talk down and 6 to go. It is a busy time of year with my church responsibilities, but serving makes me happy. In our church no one is paid. We all serve each other wilfully taking on responsibilities . I am doing trainings to hopefully inspire others to reach out to the children during covid restrictions. Making a child feel like they matter and are loved and remembered is so rewarding.

3. Quilting: I found a used pattern online that is out of print!  I have had my fabric ready to make this one for months, now I have the pattern. I won't likely get to it this year though. 


Note to my wonderful followers:

It is difficult for me to comment on your bligs until I get my laptop back. I am reading though and will leave comments when it returns. I have not forgotten you

I Like Thursday #18

 Here it is Saturday and I only just realized I forgot to post for I Like Thursday.  Sometimes it takes me a spell to get through all those posts, so I decided to participate late.

Thank you Leeanna for this delightful linky parade!

It was a wonderful week!

1. Family time



I had to photograph these old buildings. I could see me making a quilt of them. 





I loved this fence.

As well as this adorable house.





2. School this week went smooth

3. I found out I can get the  Covid 19 vaccine in a couple weeks. 

4. My son brought home a nice girl this week.
